Craftsman Live Edge Bench

This is the second of three slab edge benches we are building to sell and try to generate a “profitable” client base. This one is more of an entry bench – just a little smaller than the last one. The stretchers taper 6 ½ degrees to fit the taper of the slab – All through Mortise & Tenon, finished with 2 coats of poly semi-gloss. Just need to find the right person (s) to buy! …My house is getting full of benches!

Beautiful bench and some fantastic wood that your friend has salvaged and kept.

Please don’t be so cruel: you can’t show stairs like that in the background and not tell us the story about it ! I love your house. Bench is great too and fits right in. Best luck with the sale. Thanks for sharing.

Kind of hard to concentrate on the bench with that staircase behind it, but great job on everything!

I’m glad I’m not the only one drooling at the staircase as well as the glass door cabinet in back
Nice job on the bench too!

I like your original twist to the Greene-inspired stair rails. I think they would have approved.

Great job on the bench, but like I said on your last post and others have said above, it’s hard not to admire that staircase. I’m flipping through the pictures trying the get the best view of it :)

Beautiful bench! I like how the side are different sizes to fit the natural edge, nice touch.

Top notch as always. Can a guy have too many places to park it?
Hope you find the golden goose.
